A couple in Delta State have been reportedly kidnapped by gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen on their wedding day.
Reports revealed that the couple’s marriage ceremony was scheduled for February 13 along the railway in Emuhu, Agbor, Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State.
It was gathered that the abductors demanded N15 million to release their victims whose names were yet to be identified.
A source in the community said, “Fulani Herdsmen kidnapped lovers whose marriage was slated to hold last Saturday, alongside one other at Railway Emuhu Agbor; demanding 15m for their release.
“There is a battalion of soldiers, police, and host of security agencies in Ika land, but they could not do anything to prevent the rate of kidnapping. Imagine innocent people who supposed to wed and enjoy their marriage being kidnapped. It is very painful.
“Now they are demanding money for their release. Where will they get that kind of money from?”
Several calls and text messages put across to the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, were not responded to as of the time of filing this report.
